The manner in which these trees were growing  fascinated me

  5. Hi Carol,

    I've missed you! Your pup is the cutest thing; keep her on that leash or the decorative "thing" will get her!

    Have a Beautiful Blue Monday!

  6. Yes the last is definitely the best. I'm not sure about wolfie decorating nature's palette though.

  7. Wow … for a second I thought that yard decoration was real. Your pet is so much more cuddly … I would rather see a sculpture of Artmuse Dog there!

  8. Loved the post. Not sure I'd want to know the people who decorate their yard with a snarling wolf, but everything else is beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! Summer at the shore! Life is good.

  9. It's always nice to visit your blog ! Wonderful pictures !
    Greetings

  10. Nice to see Motif #1 still in such good repair! The wolf is likely there to keep certain pesky critters away. I wonder if it works. Zoe is so cute!

  11. Lovely images from your world. The yard art is scary looking! I love the egret and your cute pup! Have a happy week ahead!

  12. I am sure your Muse would love to chase that Great Egret. Lovely shots.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Wonderful ship for Blue Monday! Love all the photos!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I was going to say the barn looks like one I know from Rockport ...and then read that it actually is. I don't like the scary yard wolf.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Great photos and beautiful scenery - except for that bizarre yard decoration!?! I especially like the white egret with all those shades of green around it - water, vegetation and the light reflections.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Artmuse Dog is awesome as always. And your ocean shots are always a joy to see. I'll be in your part of the world in a few weeks!

    ReplyDelete
  17. If you didn't show it I wouldn't believe someone would opt to decorate their yard with that....whatever that is :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Great shots. That one is a bit scary! Thanks for sharing. Most of them. LOL.
    Have a great week.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Love the photos, love Massachusetts (beautiful state!), and love that haiku! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh how wonderful it must be to see all the boats coming and going...gorgeous photos! I especially love the haiku with that soft., peaceful background. And I love too how Art muse dog's leash jacket matches her tongue so perfectly:):)
    Oh, that has to be one of the nastiest lawn ornaments I've ever seen!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Love your dog and that egret! Not so keen on that unusual garden decoration!

    ReplyDelete
  22. These are great photos! Good job!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love the seaside photos, but I have to admit that lawn "ornament" scared me a bit!

    ReplyDelete
  24. So many lovely shots. The yard decoration is so strange. Thanks for visiting my Blue Monday

  25. Please link your barn after 6pm central to the Barn Collective. Tom The Backroads Traveller

  26. These creations are wonderful! Beautiful and fantastic images!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Holy moly, that yard decoration is too much!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Beautiful views and haiku (with the exception of the strange yard art, but it's funny if not beautiful)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Love the pearls quote! I've heard that a predator statue keeps nuisance animals out of your yard and garden... for a day or two!

    ReplyDelete
  30. What a weird decoration to have in a yard, hmmm. Now that last pic? I'd welcome that in our yard any time. :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Lovely photos and interesting write up.

    Your quote made me think. Most of us want money, fame and admiration without making an effort. Just as we cannot get pearls on the sea shore and we have to dive deep and take risks so also is the case in every other significant achievement. Idle wish will get us no where.

    Your haiku is also fascinating. The color green always brings peace and joy. I always watched vast stretches of fully grown green paddy fields swaying cheerfully to the gently blowing wind with great admiration and wonder.

    Excellent post. I enjoyed it.

    Best wishes

  36. Delightful views in your corner of the world!

  37. Was that yard decoration in a front yard? I kind of liked it. It would be fun to have something like that in the yard! You really live in a pretty area.

    ReplyDelete
